    I am looking to ship my AT from Ireland to Anchorage Alaska next June. So far I have five estimates. The first four were 2500 Euro from Ireland; the last one was 1300 pound from Manchester. Most books I've read coming in alot cheaper. Has anyone done this in the last year and if so at what cost.
